Photographic and graphic images are combined to produce “OP/POP Art” portraits and images. The visual effects of OpArt are exploited to entice the viewer into the image. Pattern repetition from graphic images and signs act as “codes” that engage the eye and invade the images. This invasion plays with spatial relationships in and around the art. The use of these graphic images with meanings we are predisposed to place us in a “control society” where these codes are used to produce a social exclusion for some groups. My art is about how forces in this hegemonic society are used to control our identities which affects our daily lives.

My work is about using portraiture, language and symbols as devices for identity, political and social commentary.



Appropriated or original photographic and graphic images are combined to produce “OP/POP Art” portraits and images. The digital medium was used in away where chance combinations of layers and blending programs were discovered & used like painting. I digitally dripped layers of images through each other producing one of a kind chance combinations. Colors & images become available in ways not seen before, altering the visual perceptions of the images as they play with the senses.



Painters like Paschke, Johns, Raushenberg, Rosenquist, Warhol and Carrie James Marshall have influenced my work.

Images are available as 16 x 30" and 24 x 50" digital chromogenic prints made in editions of 10 each. Pieces range in price from $1400 to $2800, depending on size and availability. Some sizes may vary.

Please call: (312) 266 - 2350 for prices of specific pieces.
